The Tánaiste and Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald, TD, has commended An Garda Síochána for the results they are achieving in targeting organised crime gangs. 

The Tánaiste said: 

'The ongoing operation at Sallins underlines again the fact that An Garda Síochána are being relentless and resourceful in tackling the menace of organised crime gangs. They are determined to hit those gangs where it hurts - to deprive them of their profits and to bring them to justice. No-one should underestimate the scale of the challenge which An Garda Síochána face, or the time it may take to put particular gangs out of business. But, however long it takes, those involved in such gangs will come to realise that no-one is above the law. 

The Government will, of course, continue to support fully An Garda Síochána in these efforts.'
